The 5 year-old son of 73 year-old legendary singer James Brown has been left out his fathers’ will. Was this possibly an oversight or greed?
Regardless, on Thursday only six of the seven children were named during the will reading the late singer attorneys said.
Tomi Rae Hynie who has been his partner for the last ten years, stated numerous times she did not know what was going on and that Brown and herself had already discussed what his latest son and herself would receive if he were to die and what should be done with his estate. Well, sadly enough the will that is stated to have been read, Hynie had no knowledge of when it was executed, so this inturn means the will possilby could have been old or one of his eldest children could have been holding on to. Who knows?
The will that was read Thursday has not been filed in probate court, said Buddy Dallas, another Brown attorney. And as far as the estate goes, the gates to his home were locked soon after his death, Dallas said, until attorneys could get the estate’s legal affairs in order.
The house is owned by the trust and “has been that way since August of 2000,” Dallas said. “Technically, the trustees own it for the benefit of the trust. It was not in the name of James Brown and hasn’t been that way for years.”.
Hynie’s attorney, Thornton Morris, said he doesn’t know anything about the will.
“She was locked out of the house so she doesn’t know where the will that’s being probated was found,” Morris said of his client. “She has no knowledge to when this particular will was executed.”
